Thursday 13 #13

13 Stupid News stories I read this week.

1. VA Patient has wrong testicle removed. Can you say malpractice?

2. Mayor chases rivals wife over sign. Not the best election campaign tactic to use.

3. Woman on horseback charged with DUI. But ossifer, he’s the designated driver.

4. Student who moons teacher sues school district. Geez some people just can’t take a joke.

5. Coyote visits Chicago sandwich shop. He was hot and tired from chasing Roadrunner.

6. Couple fights to name baby Metallica. That kid is so gonna bitch slap them when she gets older.

7. Judge OKs trucker’s new name: Ynot Bubba. I guess Dumbass McGraw was taken. Oh, and Hey, I’d like to meet Metallica. I think you and her parents could be great friends.

8. Man arrives at DUI hearing drunk. At least he’s consistant.

9. Keith Richards: I snorted my father. We know this is a lie, he would never cut his coke with anything.

10. Kinkajou flees zoo, bites bus passenger. They are taking this pokemon thing way too far.

11. Japanese police probe decomposing bodies. It’s a nasty job but somebody has to do it.

12. Deputies but toe and tow together. Hit and run? Yeah, I don’t think so.

13. Chicago suit charges ‘negligent dancing’. My guess? This is not the first time she’s been dropped on her head.

Sorry I haven't been around lately. Life has been throwing some heat and curve balls at us lately. Batting average is really low right now.

Great list. I hope the Japanese cops probed that body with a stick or something and not their fingers.

I needed the laughs. I had read about the Metallica thing in Sweden. Man, those folks take their heavy metal seriously, don't they?

I'm having a hard time grasping the concept that Swedish courts could ban a couple from naming their child Metallica regardless of how tasteless they believe it to be.

"Couple fights to name baby Metallica." wasn't that in Sweden? Someone was telling me yesterday that a European government (i think Sweden) is trying to pass a law dictating what parents can and cannot name their kids... based on a couple trying to name their kid Metallica. I think that is SO wrong. Yeah - Metallica is an idiotic name but so is Moonbeam and Thunderbutt but at least here we can name our kids without worrying about breaking the law.
grumbling to meself now....
